This is just a peek at some of the cool new products found in Studio Calico's January kits. If you're a subscriber, kits are available for purchase now! (The kits become available to non-subbers at midnight.) There are lots of great digital products that have just been released as well.
I think you're really going to love the card kits this month! If you haven't heard, the Copper Mountain kit comes with a stamp set & coordinating DIE set! It's so fun!
These are my must-have shop picks for this month:
1. Adhesive Backed Cork Stack - perfect for die cutting your own embellishments!
2. Wire snips - just the tool to use when separating the different images in the metal die set
3. More White Cardstock - 10 sheets of 8-1/2 x 11" cardstock. It's smooth & perfect for stamping & sturdy enough for card bases as well.
I also really love these Scripture Cards by Lindsay Letters. I love the words themselves & the chalkboard effect is really fun. The cards are 4x3", so they're perfect for Project Life or as a card focal point.
Here are some of the projects I made using the new kits. This one uses just the Copper Mountain Card Kit:
These little felties are so easy to make! I used the new metal dies from the kit, some felt & a little googly eye from my craft stash. I'll post a short tutorial for you soon!
This next project is a gift & card all in one! I used the Spaulding Bowl card kit add-on for this one:
The strip of patterned paper temporarily holds the bookmark in place, but it can slide out easily from the card front.
I have a vintage dictionary that I use to make backgrounds & other embellishments. I just selected a page that coordinated with my theme & watercolored it using Mister Huey's mist.
This next card uses just the main card kit too. I love the masculine papers found in this month's kit.
To make the fishing line, I just snipped one of the rain drops stamps to separate it from the group & stamped it repeatedly in a vertical line. I used it again horizontally to create a border. I love how the raindrops look like hand stitching.
The stamps are really awesome this month too. I love that there's a solid & an outline image for the fish. It makes adding color so easy!
This next card uses one of the new printable images from the digi shop. I just opened it in my photo editing software & repeated the image to create a background.
Here's the digital printable in it's entirety:
I used the whale metal die once again to cut through several layers on my card front. I love how strong these dies are! The sentiment is part of the Spaulding Bowl kit.
I'll be back at midnight with a video I shot while unpacking my kit. I think it's fun to see things up close & I hope you enjoy it!
